  • mascarpone 1 tub
  • icing sugar 1 tbsp
  • kahlua 2 tbsp
  • vanilla 1 tsp
  • butter for frying
  • chocolate-covered coffee beans to serve


  • plain flour 225g
  • baking powder 1 tbsp
  • instant espresso powder 2 tsp
  • eggs 2
  • butter 25g, melted and cooled
  • whole milk 200ml


  • soft brown sugar 85g
  • cocoa powder 3 tbsp
  • espresso powder 2 tsp
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    To make the pancakes put the flour, baking powder and espresso powder in a bowl and stir together. In a different bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter and milk. Gradually stir the wet mix into the dry to make a batter. Leave to sit while you make everything else.

  • Step 2

    To make the mocha syrup, put the sugar, cocoa powder and espresso powder in a pan with 100ml water and heat, whisking, until glossy and sugar has melted. Stir in the vanilla.

  • Step 3

    Mix the mascarpone with the icing sugar, Kahlúa and vanilla.

  • Step 4

    Heat a non-stick pan and brush it with butter. Pour enough batter into the pan to make a thick American-style pancake (about 10cm diameter). Wait for about a minute until the surface starts to form bubbles and has set, then flip the pancake over and cook until golden.

  • Step 5

    Remove to a plate, then brush the pan with more butter and repeat with the rest of the pancake batter (you might need to adjust the heat as you cook the pancakes).

  • Step 6

    To serve, make a pancake tower (putting a dollop of mascarpone between each one) and drizzle with the mocha syrup. Add a few chocolate covered coffee beans to decorate.
